Cartier Santos Medium vs Galbee XL

For the Cartier fans on here, what are your thoughts on the 2018 Cartier Santos Medium versus the Santos Galbee XL (discontinued in 2015)? Which do you prefer if given the choice? Pics below for reference:

Left, all SS. The gold and SS doesn't seem as cohesive a design imho.

Plus, imho, with the gold having the screw heads in all different directions does not bode well for the mixed metals visuals. More manufacturers MUST pay attention to these details if they desire my $$$. In IASCA (car audio competition), you could always tell those installers who cared about their work (all screw heads aligned, wires run neatly, etc) versus those installers who just turned wrenches to get a paycheck.
Enjoy Your Time,
